Bet of the Week

Last week we published the wrong bet and we have to own up that we chose Everton to win the FA Cup at 7/4 – so we lost €20! Our fund is now down to €26. This weekend we are going with Aidan O’Brien to win another Epsom Derby. We are having €10 each-way on Rip Van Winkle ridden by Johnny Murtagh, at 9/2.
